Teen Vaping Drops Amid COVID School Closures

(From U.S. News) The number of teenagers vaping across the United States has dropped significantly amid school closures due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new report by the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the national survey, 11% of high school students and less than 3% of middle school students said they were recent users of e-cigarettes and other vaping products. That's a roughly 40% drop from last year. If this year's numbers hold up, it would be the second big drop in a row, from a peak of 28% for high schoolers in 2019. Outside experts said the big decrease in electronic cigarettes use is likely real and makes sense given that young people often vape socially.
